I've been a scuba diver since 1990, making my first dive in Utah's Blue Lake. That experience changed my life. Within four years of learning to dive, I was teaching people to dive. Now, I teach people to teach people to dive as one of Dive Utah's PADI Course Directors.
My two diving passions are dive safety and unique diving experiences. I'm a Divers Alert Network Instructor Trainer for the DAN diving first aid programs because I want more divers to be prepared for problems.
While many of us in Utah are used to diving in warm water and hot springs, I've taken it a step further and authored the Hot Springs Diver PADI Distinctive Specialty because diving in a hot spring is a truly unique experience.
